A conversation that made me rich on my B’day.
This conversation is between Celine and I on my birthday. I met her at Facebook. She is French and is not very good at speaking English. Our initial introduction was hilarious where I mistook her for another friends girl friend because I did not understand her French note. It is then her father intervened and cleared the misunderstanding the language barrier had created. He told me that she was just a friend of his and not a girl friend. He used to translate her mails to me and vice versa, and thus we got to know each other better. More importantly I got to know Celine's father. He was a wonderful man and I was blessed enough to meet him through his letters. Often he wrote on behalf of his daughter as though acquainting her to me. He told me how interested he was to visit India one day and I was glad to extend my welcome. When he met at chat he talked about his love for music and how he perfected his English. His affection was evident in every word he wrote. For a few days there was no information from him then one day, like a bolt from the blue, I read a message from her that her father met with an accident and was no more. If not for the stupid accident I would have got a chance to meet him in life. Despite his departure, Celine and I continued to keep in touch, and friendship grew through her fathers presence always in between us. Today my day is enriched by a simple conversation we shared and the love that flowed between us. At certain point I she wrote exactly like her father. Love and respect evident in every word she wrote. Love in any form is pure and beautiful because it touches the heart and evokes emotions deep within . Her conversation did the same and I do not wish to loose it so I save it for safe keeping in my blog.

When the conversation ended I felt enriched and special. This is what the company of good people do to you. They make you feel special simply by their presence. Distance is not a matter when people connect truly. I also connected to another new artist, fashion designer today from lebanon. Her presence also enriched me which was wonderful too. I share this conversation with permission from my friend Celine.
